What are the biggest job trends in 2022?

The shifting division of labour will also affect job creation and elimination, according to researchers.


Today, 71% of total task hours across each industry profiled in the report are performed by humans, compared to 29% performed by machines or algorithms. But by 2022, the researchers predict that 58% of task hours will be performed by humans and 42% will be performed by machines and algorithms.

For example, by 2022, more than half of an organization’s data processing and information search tasks—and even some reasoning, decision-making, and administrative tasks—will be performed by machines.

According to the Future of Jobs report from the World Economic Forum, the top 10 emerging jobs for 2022 will include:

  • Data Analysts and Scientists
